"Only had this a few days but so far very impressed, lightweight and easy to use in tight spaces as it’s quite small, but seems really powerful for its size. Obviously too soon to tell how durable it is but is seems to be well build and feels rugged. Battery charges quickly and seems to hold it charge well, but great having 2 batteries so one can be charging one whilst still using the drill."
"Bought this drill as Black and Decker 18v cordless wan't up to the job. The drill is light weight, powerful and rugged. When I first saw the drill I didn't think it would be rugged enough, but experience has proved me wrong. Batteries charge within 1hr and seem to last for ages. In terms of reliability not had it long enough to judge.
"Having got through so many NiCd cordless drills, where the batteries have soon developed a memory & it cheaper to replace the drill rather than the batteries, it was time to go with the top name & L-Ion power. This combi drill delivers the power I require for the task, from screwdriving to hammer action, the built in worklight is so handy when working in or behind cabinets & I know that it's covered by the DeWalt 3 year guarantee. Why buy cheap when in the long run its cheaper to buy quality?"
"Used De Walt at work so when I needed a new drill l knew what i wanted. Invested in the Li-on version and was surprised how light and well balanced the drill turned out to be.Makes drilling and driving really easy"
"I have been looking for new cordless drill for a while. I've had many mid price one's but it is always the battery that fail first. (Ni-cad) What attracted me to this was the lithium battery and the offer of a usb adaptor for free. Excellent product, well balanced. De-Walt renown for excellence."
"Having years of using various quality drills, this purchase ticked all boxes to suit the job in hand on a daily basis, dewalt reliability, quality and even more compact and lightweight with still the power expected, a 5 star product, buy with confidence."
"I have a DeWalt 18v Ni-Cad version of this drill which has been used daily & served well for the last 4 yrs without missing a beat, whether it be stone, metal or wood its drilling, and that cost more than this one back then!. Having only had this Li-ion version for less than a week I can say that it out does the Ni-Cad for power and is much lighter to use with an unbeatable DeWalt quality build and performance to match, I this one lasts as long as the Ni-cad version I will be a very happy bunny, definitely the one to go for, value for money without doubt, wouldnt bother buying the more expensive versions, as this will do all the things you need. Plus its on offer at the moment so BUY ONE NOW!!!!"
"This is a very good, quality product that I am sure will give years of service - I have used two of these before and they have been extremely reliable with excellent battery life. The addition of a light on the model I purchased this week is a great help. I particularly like the forward/ reverse etc and the large capacity chuck. All-in-all a good product at a good price"
"My old cordless died at the weekend. Bought this as my son has (a different model) DeWalt. Got home and found that batteries were charged. Drilled 5 x 8mm holes 3" deep in hard block. My old drill would have done it but not fast. The DeWalt drilled it like it was butter. It's early days but this drill is certainly looking like the best I have ever owned and anyway it has a 3 year warranty so reliability doesn't come into it. This drill has all the functions required and they are easy to select. The torque settings are great, from full to really gentle. It is light weight and fits my large hands perfectly. I have absolutely no hesitation in 100% recommending this drill and am now looking at other DeWalt products as I am so impressed with this."
"My old cordless conked out last week and I bought this one to finish a big DIY project. I was amazed at how much better it was than my previous one - more powerful, better features (LED guide light is very handy), and it's much smaller and lighter. I finished the job in no time - with my old one I'd have had to recharge the battery at least once but this one just carried on all day. Overall very pleased indeed."
